Old Railway Station in Gor!

Post by XTreme » Sun Jul 26, 2020 4:33 pm

Despite scorching temperatures I went to check out the abandoned railway station in Gor.

And even though I'm 66, I don't let little things like heatstroke, dehydration and physical exhaustion interfere with rugged individualism.

Like all the other stations, Gor was closed on 31st December 1984! No restoration done on this one......so it was the real deal!

I really liked this one because I could get inside to do a walkthrough.......real Twilight Zone feel to it. Watch the vid to get the vibe!

First.....here's the updated map! A green spot denotes that it's been visited!

Literally in the woods across the road from my house used to lay a very impressive mansion
image.jpg

It was abandoned in 1930 and was raided of its stonework during WW2. Apparently the home guard used it for grenade practise!! In the 50's it was torn down completely.

When I was a teen you could get into the old cellars (long since bricked up) nothing was there to see but it never stopped us going down there looking :lol:

This is all that remains today
